MKR 2018 Finalists
Welcome to Kitchen HQ. It all comes down to this!
The cocktail couple finished top of the leaderboard in the Ultimate Instant Restaurant round, with a score of 93.
The journey hasn’t been an easy one for Alex and Emily, who found themselves fighting for their lives in Elimination House twice in a row.
Talented cooks, they sometimes found the pressure of the competition a bit much.
Will they be able to keep their cool in the Finals?
Olga and Valeria are the first team to bring a Russian flair to the MKR table.
Their food was unusual, and often polarising to the other guests, but the judges saw that their cooking skills were solid.
Confessing from the start that they’re not here to make friends, Olga and Valeria have slowly warmed up to the other contestants.
If one thing’s certain though, they’ll be all business when it comes to the Finals.
The laidback brother and sister team from Tasmania have been consistently good throughout the competition.
Flying under the radar, the small-town duo have loved every minute of the MKR adventure, even if Henry’s good looks granted him some unwanted attention from the other guests…
Truffle farmers by trade, Henry and Anna have proved that their knowledge of food isn’t to be underestimated.
Can they continue their winning streak in the Finals?
These Melbourne mums came on MKR to escape their kids, but more so to make them proud. We reckon they’ve achieved that.
With their ambitious menus, and endless knowledge of herbs and spices, Kim and Suong have blown the judges away on more than one occasion.
The girls have consistently delivered delicious, traditional Asian cuisine, hearty meals with a kick and a point of difference.
Will it be enough to see them through until the end though?
Energetic brothers Josh and Nic came through in the end, despite some fiery sibling quarrels in the kitchen.
Their cuisine outshone fellow Italians Davide and Marco, and their gnocchi was labelled the best in the competition by Manu.
They produced a lot of crowd pleasers, taking out People’s Choice in several challenges.
They’re used to cooking for a big mob at their family restaurant, so hopefully that works in their favour in the Finals.
The youngest team in the competition, waitresses Stella and Jazzey served up some impressive dishes.
With their whacky flavour combinations, the colourful besties were full of surprises.
Sometimes their creativity paid off, other times it didn’t.
The girls finished second-to-last in the Ultimate Instant Restaurant round, but they’re determined to prove they’ve got what it takes.
